Outdoor gear retailer REI to open SC’s 3rd store in Mount Pleasant

MOUNT PLEASANT — A national specialty outdoor gear retailer plans to move into a former supermarket space in the state’s fourth-largest city, bringing its third outpost to South Carolina.
Recreational Equipment Inc., or REI Co-op, announced June 6 it will take over the 21,535-square-foot space GreenWise Market that Publix vacated in 2020 in Indigo Square Shopping Center off U.S. Highway 17. The company plans to hire about 50 workers.
Washington-based REI plans to open in the fall and stock an assortment of apparel, gear and expertise for camping, cycling, running, fitness, hiking, paddling, climbing and other outdoor activities. It also will include a full-service bike shop staffed by certified mechanics.
The self-proclaimed largest consumer cooperative in the nation offers members who join a range of benefits, including a used gear trade-in program, discounts on experiences, rentals and shop services, a share of the co-op’s annual profits based on qualifying purchases and other perks.
REI also partners with nonprofits to help maintain local trails and public lands.
In South Carolina, the co-op has invested nearly $184,000 in South Carolina-based land agencies and nonprofit partners since 2017. Recent recipients include Anne Springs Close Greenway, Conestee Foundation Inc., Friends of Harbison State Forest, Friends of Paris Mountain, Friends of Sesqui and Palmetto Trail-parent Palmetto Conservation Foundation.
The recreational equipment and gear retailer will be positioned about two miles north of competitor Dick’s Sporting Goods, which opened in 2015 near Highway 17 and Bowman Road. Other East Cooper businesses that could be affected by the newcomer include Haddrell’s Point Tackle & Supply, Henry’s Sporting Goods, Timeout Sport & Ski and Half-Moon Outfitters.
Billy Richardson of Play It Again Sports said REI’s entry into the market may help his business more than hurt.
“We have one category that crosses with REI, and that’s bikes,” Richardson said. “The majority of ours are lower end of $400 or less, and theirs are probably mostly boutique brands. I don’t think it will cross over too much with us, and it might help our business with people doing more trade-ins.”
Beezer Molten, CEO of Half-Moon Outfitters, said REI’s move into the region wasn’t unexpected.
“Anytime a big competitor moves into your marketplace, you are going to have some concerns,” Molten said. “I’m not surprised, not alarmed and not particularly worried. ... If you are intentionally trying to build a business, you try to come in under a big-box retailer and that requires more thoughtful urban infill decisions.”
REI also will be vying for business with big-box outdoor rival Sportsman’s Warehouse near Tanger Outlets in North Charleston.
In Mount Pleasant, the company is expanding to an affluent, fast-growing town with a population approaching 100,000, a median household income of about $105,000 and a median sales price for a single-family home of $820,000 as of April.
REI’s two other stores in the Palmetto State are in Greenville and Columbia.
The chain was founded in 1938 when a group of 23 climbing friends, united by their love for the outdoors, decided to source quality and affordable gear for their adventures. The retailer now has 175 locations in 41 states and the District of Columbia and employs 15,000 workers.

Mt. Pleasant seeks $2.5M to make shrimping docks safer

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - The town of Mount Pleasant will preserve one of the last shrimping docks on Shem Creek through a $2.5 million appropriation endorsed by Senator Lindsey Graham.
Mount Pleasant purchased this dock back in 2019 to help maintain and ensure safe conditions for shrimpers. They are currently going through the first phases of approval for this project.
The plan is to approve the structures that are holding the docks up and once that is done, they want to reconstruct the area around the dock to make it safer for local shrimping companies. Mount Pleasant leaders say their top priority is to ensure the safety of the shrimpers, so they can continue their business.
“They are certainly going to be noticeable to those people using those docks as a working dock day in and day out,” Assistant Town Administrator Christiane Farrell said. “So, for them, this ensures continued business in support of the shrimping industry, which is really kind of the town’s purpose when we purchased these. We had the opportunity to buy this property several years ago. It was to show continued support for that industry.”
Farrell emphasizes that the safety of its shrimpers is a top priority.
“They receive a lot of wear and tear,” Farrell said. “Tides are coming in and out. It’s the mouth of the creek. They had a lot of deferred maintenance prior to us taking ownership and were really in need of repair. It’s important to us, the town, the town council to keep those docks operational and continue to support the shrimping industry.”
Tarvin Seafood is the business that sits right on this dock. Over the years, they have had to make minor repairs to the dock themselves, but they say they fear that if a big storm comes, the dock will be gone.
Cindy Tarvin, one of the owners of Tarvin Seafood, says she is eager for the plan to get approved.
“I think if the town desires to keep a maritime community of working waterfront, then I think it’s probably one of the most important things they need to do,” Tarvin said. “Whether it’s for us, Tarvin Seafood, or any other entity that would be managing that would be running a dock and a fishing business out of it.”
The town still needs approval from a few more senators before they can officially get their money. They hope to start the dock reconstruction by the beginning of 2023.

Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament ‘a dream come true’ for Charleston boat High Yield

To say there were plenty of of anxious moments for the crew of the Charleston boat High Yield during the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament would be a major understatement.
It was nearly a week’s worth of angst after the anglers landed on the leaderboard on the first day of the rich $5,858,875 tournament fished June 13-18 out of Morehead City, N.C.
High Yield’s 536.8-pound blue marlin earned the crew a $283,525 payday as the third heaviest fish of the tournament, but every hookup over the remaining five days of the tournament was a reason for the anglers to hold their breaths with the potential that someone else could pass them for one of the three big payouts.
“It wasn’t until 3:02 p.m. on Saturday that we were certain,” said High Yield crew member Ryan Murphy. “Randy Ramsey (of the Big Rock tournament) came on the radio at 3 o’clock and said lines were in but one boat was hooked up. You could hear a pin drop in the boat. And then at 3:02 he came back on the radio and said the last boat hooked up didn’t catch their fish so the tournament was over. The celebrating commenced at that point.”
High Yield is a 57-foot Spencer sportfishing boat owned by Mount Pleasant businessman Bernard Linney, who was the team’s angler during the Big Rock. Paul Wiseman captains the boat which fishes out of Ripley Light Yacht Club, and crew members during the Big Rock included Murphy, Rayburn Mulkey, Bobby Westburry, Robbie Westburry, Wayne Dent and Erik Mater.
The boat Mercenaria, owned by Chad Ballard of Cherrystone, Va., won the tournament with a 572.6-pound catch and earned a whopping $3,489,813, which included a $777,750 bonus for being the first boat to the scales with a 500-pound catch.
Mercenaria hooked its fish at 11:30 a.m. and was at the dock at 2:04 p.m.; High Yield got its hookup at at 2:10 p.m. and got back to the dock at 5:14 p.m., but the $777,750 Fabulous Fisherman prize for a 500-pound blue was a winner-take-all for the first boat.
Murphy said this was the second year High Yield had fished the Big Rock but first time winning a big prize. Linney’s crew participated in the KWLA tournament, a ladies only event fished in conjunction with Big Rock, a couple of days prior to the main event and used it as a practice session.
“We ended up finding a blue marlin that day and a pretty good body of water. We went back to that same general area Monday and we were seeing tons of life. But we didn’t get our bite until 2:10, and we ended up having the fish in the boat at 2:39 p.m. It was the only bite we got all day,” Murphy said.
“When the fish hit, we didn’t see the bit. Maybe 30 seconds later the fish swam toward the boat and made five or six big jumps, tail-walking. We knew it was a good-sized fish but didn’t think it was a kill fish until we got it beside the boat and put a tape measure on it. Once we got the tape on, we knew the fish was going for a boat ride.”
High Yield held second place for a couple of hours before the boat Wall Hanger made its way back to the weigh-in with a 556.4-pound blue marlin, that was worth $426,287, knocking the Charleston crew back to third. Two other blues were weighed Monday, another was brought in Wednesday and two blues were caught Thursday, but High Yield held on. The remainder of the blues caught by participants were all released., including a blue marlin release on Thursday.
“If you follow the Big Rock, it’s usually down to the bitter end. It’s rare a fish holds up all week,” Murphy said. “We had five more days to sweat it out, and sweat we did.”
Murphy said going to the awards ceremony was a cool experience. None of the crew knew what to expect, but when they arrived they had a sign up for the High Yield team and a table reserved.
“It was a nail-biter,” Murphy said, “but I can tell you it was a dream come true for every single one of us on that crew.”
• The Charleston boat Benchmark finished third in the release division of the tournament with 1,600 points, releasing three blue marlin on June 13 and the fourth on June 18. Benchmark won $44,625.

50 years of Title IX recognized at Mount Pleasant girls sports camp

Fifty years after Title IX passed, an all-girls sports camp flourishes in Mount Pleasant. Led by ESPN college basketball analyst and Women’s Basketball Hall of Famer Debbie Antonelli, the camp aims to build, serve and empower.
Title IX was passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972 and prohibits sex-based discrimination in any school that receives funding from the federal government. This applied to athletics programs, too.
Antonelli says she’s a product of Title IX. She was eight years old when it passed. By the time she was nine, she was playing on her first basketball team.
“I played basketball and then…I played little league baseball because there wasn’t an option for girls. I feel very strongly about girls playing and I don’t care what they play. I just want them to play because I have always believed the value in sport and what it teaches,” Antonelli said.
The Build, Empower, Serve all-girls sports camp gives campers the chance to try out several different sports. Groups of roughly seven to 10 girls rotated between stations with sports like golf, basketball and soccer.
The campers get a turn to try their hand at a long jump, placing their feet in starter blocks and tossing a rugby ball around with the Wando Rugby teams. Just about every sport you can think of is present at the sports camp. Volleyball, lacrosse, field hockey, ultimate Frisbee and even adaptive sports like wheelchair basketball and pickleball.
“I believe if you’re six or seven and you’ve never played field hockey or lacrosse or rugby, you may never consider it. Everyone kicks a soccer ball and shoots hoops,” Antonelli said. “Hoops is my sport. I’d prefer them to play my sport, but instead of worrying about them just playing my sport, I just want girls to play.
There is one thing that’s not present at the camp: judgment. The sports camp serves as a judgment-free zone for the girls to learn about the sport and try new things without a competitive undertone.
Millie Zarillo is an 11-year-old camper at the Build, Serve, Empower camp. Her favorite sport to play is volleyball, but she’s enjoyed trying other things, even if she doesn’t like them. She says she’s competitive by nature, but learning new sports in an environment like this one has been good for her.
“If you’re competitive, you just worry about other stuff that’s not having fun and you worry about winning,” Zarillo said.
At the start of the camp, many girls are nervous and apprehensive. The camp has a psychologist that helps the campers push beyond their fears and be strong and powerful instead — by emulating a popular female superhero.
“A psychologist speaks to them every year about the power pose: a Wonder Woman pose,” Antonelli said. “The next time you’re nervous. If you do the power pose, you won’t be nervous. So that’s trying to build confidence, trying to serve the community in a positive way.”
The camp is run by staff and volunteers who are passionate about instilling the love of sports into the younger generation. Allison Booth, a counselor at the camp, said she enjoys watching the campers find a sport that they love — just like she did when she was a girl.
“Obviously there’s going to be some sports that they don’t love but watching them like try a new sport and be like ... ’Did you see that? Did you see how I hit that golf ball?” Booth said. “I want all these girls to find a sport that they love and grow up playing. So it’s really cool that they get to be introduced to all of these different ones.”
The supportive spirit is strong throughout the camp. The campers cheer for each other when they do well and lend a helping hand when needed. Pickle balls and basketballs fly through the gym. Laughter bounces off the walls.
Antonelli, who is a recent inductee into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, said there is no other place she would rather spend her time celebrating that honor.
“Nothing makes me happier than celebrating my Hall of Fame week here with these little girls,” Antonelli said. “One day there’s going to be some little girl in here that’s going to be a Hall of Famer. We just don’t know which one yet. There are so many options. That gives me chills.”
